What is AI?
AI, or Artificial Intelligence, is like having a smart friend in the digital world. Imagine it as a computer or a program that can learn from information and experiences, a bit like how you learn from reading books or talking to people.
It can do all sorts of helpful things. It can chat with you, like the voice assistant on your phone. It can look at lots of data and find patterns, which helps doctors make better decisions about your health. It can even help cars drive themselves safely.
Think of AI as a helpful tool that makes life easier and more exciting. It’s like having an online assistant who’s good at learning and helping you with all kinds of tasks.
Other uses for AI
AI is now used in everyday life from finance and education to manufacturing and entertainment. It’s a technology that continues to advance and impact our daily lives in many ways. You’ve probably been using it without knowing it.
Virtual assistants such as Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa can answer questions, set reminders, send messages, and control smart devices in your home.
Healthcare providers are using AI to help diagnose diseases, predict patient outcomes, and suggest treatment plans based on medical data and research. Read how the NHS is using AI HERE
Online services, such as Netflix and Amazon, use AI to recommend films, products, and content based on your previous choices and preferences.
AI-driven chatbots provide customer support on websites, social media, and messaging apps, offering quick responses to common queries. Chat is now a regular form of communication on many websites.
It plays a crucial role in self-driving cars, helping them navigate, make decisions, and react to changing road conditions to improve safety and efficiency. Something we can expect to see more of in the future.
The future holds enormous potential and could revolutionise many aspects of our lives. AI’s impact will continue to expand, making our lives more convenient, efficient, and sustainable, while also raising important questions and challenges that society will need to address.
In the future, doctors might use AI in ADHD evaluations to determine which type of ADHD someone has more accurately. This could lead to better treatment choices that match each person’s needs. There is an interesting article on the future of AI and diagnosis HERE
The University of Huddersfield is also working on a project to develop a solution for diagnosing ADHD in adults, shortening the time people will need to wait for a diagnosis.
